Woops totally forgot to answer.
I mean the actual combos in game. Like hadouken and everything else there is. Thats a lot harder than just picking up a gamecube controller and learning the 16 moves there are in the game, that work for every character always.
You actually have to play for some time, before you even know all that stuff, which led me to lose interest pretty quickly sadly. I might try to pick it up sometime again.

Ye it was terrible.
1) Smash 4 more so than melee IMO. Most smash pros are at least 20. I mean mang0's got a fuckin kid haha

2) I think the reason for this is, that melee is a lot easier to get into than SF. I bought SF 4 when it came out, played 2 hours and never touched it again. The great thing with melee and smash games in general is, that you dont have to remember combos or things like that to be able to actually play the game. SF feels kind of sluggish when you dont know half of the comboes etc.

A common thing for newer players to do when getting into SF is getting caught up on combos, while generally you can do jab > jab > cr. MP > special for 70% of the cast. A lot of people google the hardest stuff, the character specific things (like Yun combos on Honda), but that's not at all necessary to learn.

lets say you play Ryu, if you learn how to do cr. MK > hadoken and anti air you are pretty much set to win against people with just footsies, no need for any combo.

That wasnt the way I took it either. I understand that it isnt a fighting game in the same way GG and SF are, though I still think its pretty sad that our communities dont seem to want to join. For me EVO was an amazing tournament and in the end I think both communities would benefit from more events like it. Though I agree, there are obnoxious af smash fans, who don't understand that the smash games pretty much are GUESTS at EVO and shouldn't have such high demands.

Its great to see that you are read up on EVO drama with smashers whining on twitter, that was a shitfest to say the least.

I personally think that two big thing holding the communities from joining together are
1) The age difference in the communities are pretty big, with most SF players going from older teens to adults (if you are looking at the pro seen) while smash is mostly young kids to older teens

2) Many smashers dont branch out and play different games, I wish more people that played smash that have a competitive spirit would try other fighting games and not only stick with smash, its very common in my local scene for the SF/GG/BB players to try smash, but not the other way around.

Id say melee has something similar to footsies, though it works a bit differently. I'd call smash more of a sandbox fighting game. There are less rigid combos and more free flowing play. Though im not super familiar with street fighter and other real FG thats what Ive heard atleast.

See, I don't want people to take this as me saying smash sucks, I play Bayonetta in smash 4 and I love it, I know how techincal the game is.

I also play BlazBlue/Guilty Gear/Street Fighter, and being in the FGC (Fighting Game Community) since 2010, I have learned that the FGC and smash community don't mesh very well, and a lot of people (me included) don't count smash as a fighting game.

Again, that doesn't take any skill away from the game, I know from first hand experience how technical the game (melee a lot more so than 4) is.

...What makes it not a fighting game?
User avatar
#28 - northleech (08/18/2016) [-]
It does not have anything that a fighting game does other than 1v1 combat and attacking. Its not more of a fighting game than some duel minigames in Mario Party

Life Bars
Corners
Meter Management
Footsies
Anti airs
High/low defense

Those (minus anti airs for 3D fighters) are some fundamental things to fighting games

Smash has none of those.
